This weekend in temperatures was above 60F and the skies were clear giving Clevelanders an opportunity to take full advantage of spring lifestyle and beauty events. I was able to get my foot in the door at several of them and had a great time doing so. Take a peek at what my fair city offered this past weekend!
After running the usual errands, my afternoon began with an appointment at Dior in Beachwood's Nordstrom. There I met Dior National Makeup Artist, Garrett Claubet, who is based in New York but was in town for a special beauty event over the weekend. Garrett is a outgoing guy who knows all about Dior, especially how to make your eyes POP!
Before we got down to makeup, I had a mini facial to prep my skin for a fresh spring look. I use Dior's Diorsnow skincare for radiant skin which includes: creamy cleanser, toner, eye serum, facial serum and a SPF moisturizer. I just love the way they describe the line:
DIORSNOW: In the eternal quest for ideal bright beauty, Dior Science has discovered the exceptional brightening power of a legendary flower, the Edelweiss. It is the only flower able to bloom with pure whiteness even under extreme external conditions. The more extreme the conditions are, the whiter this rare flower blooms.
During my makeup consultation with Garrett, I mentioned I love color and will take risks for the sake of beauty. We talked about what my plans were for the night, considered my day and night wardrobe and selected an eye palette perfect for spring! When we were in agreement he immediately got a twinkle in his eyes, asked if we could have some fun, I said yes and my heart skipped beat. We went with Dior's Candy Choc...check it out below!
A Dior facial, a fresh spring look, Dior products, samples and a Dior bag filled with even more goodies was a great end to this beauty event and an even better start to my weekend!
Saturday night my husband and I went to the casino to listen to music, try our luck and grab a bite to eat. We enjoy a meal at the casino's buffet to start and then walked the gaming floors to see if anything caught our eye.
While we were there the Horseshoe was preparing to have ticket drawing for a special CAVS event. The finalists could qualify for a pair of playoff tickets and the chance to make a lay up for $77, a free throw shot for $770, a 3 point shot for $7700, and a half court shot for $77,000. Every finalist would win but there would be three top prize winners goingto the game.
We continue strolling, watching other patrons win and played a few slots before heading upstairs to the Diamond Lounge. Not long after we ordered and received our drinks they began to announce the 10 finalists for the CAVS drawing and my name was called! I had 5 minutes to get to the winner's circle for my chance to win.
